Abstract: In this era of advancements in IoT technology, the development of a commercial, configurable module for easy node data acquisition and transmission in IoT applications is a necessity. Most of the available systems are application-specific. This research work is on the development of a plug-and-play module for node data acquisition and transmission in IoT-based applications. A generic framework for IoT sensors and controllers was developed. In this work, a plug-and-play device that adapts non-IoT sensors and controllers for use in IoT applications was developed. Software application for the implementation of the model was developed. Online validation of the work using an open-source server was carried out. The node can be used to acquire data from any remote location that has a GPRS network. Therefore, the system can be applied in many areas of IoT automation for remote data acquisition. The throughput of the system is 95%. The latency of the node was found to be 3 seconds, while the processing time of the node is 135 seconds. The system proposed in this research will reduce the design to market time for IoT systems to two hours. This work will help in the standardization of the backend of remote IoT nodes for easy integration in the larger IoT ecosystem. The work can be commercially produced as generic configurable IoT controller modules by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) thereby making it simpler to apply IoT technology in several fields of endeavours.
